After the successful completion of the subject, students should have assimilate the following:
1. The ways by which the basic principles of Inorganic Chemistry are applied in industrial processes for the production of various materials-products having broad applications.
2. The ways by which the basic chemical principles of Kinetics and Thermodynamics are applied, for the thorough study of the chemistry which is developed, induced and/or triggered under different reaction conditions in such a way, that the presence or absence of catalysts lead the chemical process to end products which are well characterised and have industrial applications.
